Activists to rally for healthcare at the General Assembly this evening

Despite the wet weather, organizers are still expecting a large gathering this evening at the General Assembly as the Forward Together movement led by Rev. William Barber rallies for healthcare access for all North Carolinians. This is from an announcement distributed by the N.C. Justice Center’s Health Advocacy Project:

TONIGHT: Rally for Health Care at the General Assembly in Raleigh at 6:00 p.m.

Join us tonight for a rally to save our health care outside the North Carolina General Assembly at 6:00 p.m.!

Earlier this month, the United States House of Representatives narrowly passed a disastrous health care bill to take away coverage from 24 million Americans and eviscerate the Medicaid program. On top of that, nine of North Carolina’s congressman voted for it. The fate of our nation’s health care now rests in the hands of the Senate.

On top of that, we have half a million North Carolinians that have been shut out of health coverage options because of the North Carolina General Assembly’s failure to expand access to Medicaid coverage.

These lawmakers need to hear from us. Now is the time to make your voice heard! Join us and our allies at the North Carolina NAACP to rally for our nation’s health care.

Click here to join us today outside the General Assembly in Raleigh to tell lawmakers to protect our health care!

And here is a preview video produced by the organizers:
